Morning all.

Currently 35 heading for 60.

On the docket today post-work, I have to go to Hole Depot and buy some blinds for the house, as the ones we have were questionable to begin with, and then having windows open during an unexpected wind storm turned them into confetti. Such fun.

Retired Four-star General Colin Powell and former U.S. Secretary of State has passed....
I held high regard for Mr. Powell's integrity and leadership, even when I did not agree with him .... he will be missed.

 So it's the Feds (FAA) that doesn't like a private citizen's attempt to go to space and possibly make money eventually. Oh the horror of a capitalist doing something without the government approval! LOL ::)

Prof.  I could take thousands of photos ....
however , there is a virtual tour app. for a self-guided tour or you can opted a volunteer docent.

Currently 58° , heading to 83° as the high and clear  0 chance of showers   , fall is here

I'm using the LEE 330 grain RNFP cast from wheelweights, a milk carton card, 55 grains of Swiss # 4 (1,5 Fg) blackpowder.  Federal Large Rifle Magnum primers.

Swiss # 3 (2 Fg) will also work.  Swiss burns cleaner and has a little more "Oomph" compared to other brands.

Special considerations:  Copper-plated bullets have no lube, so I'd expect precision to decline rapidly with blackpowder, unless You swab the bore between shots.  You might benefit from adding a "grease-cookie" between bullet and powder.  You'll also need a card wad over and under the grease-cookie.

If You decide to experiment with reduced blackpowder-loads it is imperative to fill the void between bullet and powder with card wads / cork wads or something similar, or a ringed chamber may be the result.

I am a lucky man.  My wife does not ask too many questions and never encourages me to get rid of anything. As long as there is money in the bank and the bills are paid, she is a happy woman. I tell her that she knew the job was dangerous when she took it.
